The holiday actually marks Mexican forces’ 1862 triumph over the French and is usually honored with parades, speeches and battle re-enactments in its native land, but in the U.S. the celebration has taken on a different form, Encyclopedia Britannica says.
Americans have embraced the holiday as an excuse to celebrate our neighbors to the south through music and food, kick back on the patio and – of course – sip on a margarita.
